I have a whole line up of blog posts coming your way soon! We are definitely in the midst of Spring Wedding Season! I’ve been enjoying all the engagement sessions & weddings I’ve photographed so far! The blog and fb page are going to get REAL busy here soon with posts!
I’ve been reflecting on what to post for this weeks Date Night Thursday and my mind keeps coming back to the same thing. This week there was a video that was going viral about a young man that has been battling cancer for a few years and made a video that he wanted to leave as a tribute & message to others. I sat at my computer and wept for the young man who passed away the very morning I was watching the video. What struck me was his contagious smile, positive energy, and AMAZING outlook on LIFE. It brings me back to the Choose Joy post & way that I’m trying to improve my outlook on life & maintain a healthy marriage. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out the post here. I love that this video has received so much attention, the message hits home with so much impact. Instead of sitting back and watching life pass us by, we need to love harder & go out and do the things we keep putting off till tomorrow. It really struck me that Zach felt invincible as a graduating senior about to attend college. Invincible. Wow. I’m sure the last thought in his mind was that he was going to find out he has cancer and only have a short time longer on this earth. I’m not saying we should all sit around and worry about how much time we have left – but quite the opposite, and the message that Zach carried out till his last breathe was to choose joy, live out your dreams, and LOVE with everything you have (every moment of every day). Most importantly, to tell those around us just how much they mean to us. Thank you Zach for the reminder that life is insanely precious. Thank you for the reminder to squeeze & hug on to my loved ones just a little bit longer every day and feel blessed for every.single. moment. The video speaks louder than anything I could say in this post, so I’m leaving you with the video and individual that touched my life this week. Much love friends.
